ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. – Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) announced the launch of the Double Down pass, the ski industry’s first two-season pass product. With the Double Down pass, skiers and riders have the advantage of locking in the pass price for two seasons at a great rate without worrying about a price increase.

This adult two-season pass is valid for unlimited skiing and riding at Arapahoe Basin for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. The Double Down pass costs $499 and saves regular A-Basin adult season pass holders at least $99 over two years.

“With an average of 233 ski days per season, our A-Basin guests can now get two very long Colorado ski seasons at a very affordable price,” Arapahoe Basin COO Alan Henceroth said.

The Double Down also affords its pass holders the same great on-mountain benefits as the regular single-season A-Basin pass. These include 10 percent off food and beverage purchases as well as purchases made in the Arapahoe Sports retail shop. A-Basin pass holders also receive one $45 half-day class lesson with the A-Basin Snowsports School (Friday through Sunday), $10 off performance tuning (valid all season), one unguided day at Silverton, and discounted pricing on lift tickets for friends and family.

Interested skiers and riders are encouraged to buy the Double Down soon, as it is only available until December 31, 2012. Pass holders who have already purchased a single-season A-Basin pass can upgrade to the Double Down for $200.

Single-season A-Basin passes are also on sale: $299 for adults; $209 for youth ages 15-18; and $139 for children ages 6-14. Seniors 70+ ski for $75.

All A-Basin pass products are available at the mountain, online or by calling 888-ARAPAHOE (272- 7246).

Situated on 960 acres of rugged peaks, spruce forests and natural, rolling terrain, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area boasts the longest ski and ride season in Colorado. A-Basin, known as “The Legend,” combines quality amenities with affordable pricing and a laid-back atmosphere that locals and vacationers of all ages can enjoy. This winter, elevate your experience at Arapahoe Basin.
